The EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture, the Mies van der Rohe Award, was presented to the Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin over the weekend. The hall was designed by Barcelona-based studio Barozzi/Veiga. “This winning project finds a convincing formal and spatial strategy for a city which strives for a better future in a fast changing economy and social patterns,” the jury said. The building was hailed for “delivering a dignity to urban life and at the same time enhancing the city’s specific historical identity with a contemporary ‘monument’.”
